Author of the Week, M. Jones, Interview

M. Jones

About the Author:

M Jones has been published in many venues, both online and in print, and made her first foray into the experimental medium of web serials with 314 Crescent Manor.
The fidgety dead have been known to rise and walk about, especially in M Jones's novel Frankie And Formaldehyde, available at Smashwords.
Experimental horror that blends science fiction, suspense, drama and a good scare are the tools of M Jones's trade.
That sound heard in the upper floors of a semi-detached home are the scrapings of poisoned knife tips on an old Olympia typewriter. The letters hit the blank page like clacking teeth.
Never read over her shoulder.

PRAISE FOR M JONES

"Agreat story premise, a great cast of quirky characters, and fantastic dialogue." - Zoe E Whitten, author of Peter the Wolf


"A fantastic, fun, and philosophical read." - Nancy Brauer, author of Strange Little Band

Interview with M. Jones

Holly: Hi M. Jones! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?
M. Jones: My name is M. Jones and I am the author of several books, which are available at bloodlettersink.com I am also a writer for 1889Labs (1889.ca) and they are showcasing my latest published work, Gangster.


Holly: Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?


M. Jones: The imagery and the characters were definitely there at first.  I pictured a black alleyway, with jazz music playing in the background, and across from a noisy speakeasy was a solitary, quiet chapel hidden against the black bricks.  The story grew from that image, into a series of conflicts between a priest and a young flapper.  At first, Clara was just young and naive, but as the story developed in its early stages, I grew to understand she was much more sophisticated, with problems that were as far reaching as the alien who had descended to Earth, and now resided in the guise of a priest.  So, really, the first thing that came to me for this novel was the setting.  Out of that dark, dreary atmosphere full of menace, everything grew.


Holly: Where can we purchase Gangster?

M. Jones: Gangster can be purchased at a variety of venues, but your best bet is to head to 1889.ca/gangster where it is listed at amazon, barnes & noble, Powell's, etc.  1889Labs is a very unique publishing company that has a wide variety of interesting titles that you should check out.  I myself recommend anything by A. M. Harte and Gabriel Gadfly's poetry is a must.

Holly: Do you think you may ever go into another genre?

M. Jones: I actually experiment a lot with different genres, and while I do like historical novels I'm not afraid to go contemporary or even into urban fantasy.  My latest foray is into steampunk with an ongoing project entitled 'Bluebottle'.  I'm hoping to marry romance, steampunk, 1970's feminism and clockworks into the mix. 
Holly: Are you working on anything at the moment?


M. Jones: I am working on another project for 1889, as well as a zombie apocalypse novel which I have presented as a web serial at http://westmarket.bloodlettersink.com  It's less about zombies than it is about relationships between highly imperfect people and our need for blame. 


Holly: Can you tell us a few do’s and don’ts for aspiring authors?

M. Jones: Don't give up.  It sounds so cliche, but it's true.  There are going to be so many forces out there, especially now, beating every part of your creative body with whatever stick can be found.  It's not enough to have a thick skin, you need to be made of armour.  Keep up the positive because Lord knows, that critic in your head is going to be the worst one you will ever deal with, and he's got a lot of ammunition waiting, the jerk.  Do learn the craft, get all the rules and regulations down pat, and then be prepared to break all of them.  Don't build the same bridge twice.  Each book is its own entity, looking for you to guide it through its torrid universe.  Handle it carefully, and respect what it has to say.
Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

M. Jones: I would very much like to thank those of you who are reading and have been fans of my work for quite some time.  It's been an absolute joy to be a part of the discussions, and I am happy to say that your support has been much appreciated and I value the friendships that have been forged as a result.
Holly: Are you reading anything interesting at the moment? If so, what is it?

M. Jones: I've currently finished a reread of Richard Braughtigan's The Hawkline Monster, which is one of my favourite books by him.  I love the poetic sparseness of his work, and how easily he seems to weave in very complex plots and concepts using very simple language.  Absolutely a brilliant author, and it's a tragedy if you haven't read him.
